Jing, I agree with you. Corporate culture equates to understanding the company’s background, which provides the common goal of keeping the IT team aligned with the company’s strategy. It is also important to reconcile and understand the true value of each member so that each member can play their part.
Mengqiao, I very much agree with your three points, the team’s cooperation and goals are related to the company’s strategy and background, which can make the team move in one direction. In addition, based on customer requirements as the basis for the development of products that customers are interested in the company’s products can be welcomed.
If I were a member of the IT strategy team, I would do the following to make the IT organization’s strategy consistent with the company’s strategy:

Yes, I agree with you that the theme of the game should be what the fans want, not just the technical team and the stakeholders, which will lack the participation of players.

In the event of corporate culture differences or conflicts should be timely communication and remedial measures before the start of cooperation to find consistency and compatibility.
Hiding cost risks is beyond my expectation. After all, the total amount of outsourcing contracts does not accurately reflect the company’s cost of providing IT services to third parties.
The risk of losing power is not easily noticeable, but it is real. Some global companies will set up their own IT service centers overseas to reduce costs or acquire skills. This actually reduces the loss of talent but will shift the focus of work to overseas regions.
Outsourcing related risks include lack of control and lack of business or domain knowledge.
Lack of control – we know that outsourcing is the business contract to a third party to complete, sometimes because of the cost of the relationship will usually choose to practice in some low-cost countries, this time because of distance or time difference…[Read more]
